I'm depressed! I'm setting up a 29 gal. sorority tank b/c I just LOVE the ladies! (No, I mean female bettas-I'm a girl, too!) They are friskier than my male (albeit he's an EE plakat; not exactly a sports-model fish)!
So far I have a CT and a VT female; I bought them (one @ Petco and one at Petsmart) for their drop-dead beautiful colors. Just as pretty as the boys!
I don't plan on breeding them, but I'd like a few fancy fins/colors for the rest of the sorority. I went on Aquabid- YIKES! Lovely fish, but at $20+ then shipping, that's one pricey fish!
So- yay! This site has classifieds! I wanted to post to breeders that I'd be happy to buy a non-show/breeder girl. Hopefully, I'd be saving some from a cull by a professional breeder.
THEN, I discovered that you have to have 100 posts to put a post in classifieds. I'm nowhere near that. No breeders offer sub-par fish for sale. I'd love an exotic color/form, and would be happy to pay a reasonable price... any ideas?
